Spring is around the corner and you know what that means… home improvement and clean up projects!
One of the most critical aspects of your home is exterior siding. Not only does it keep out extreme heat or cold but prevents moisture from getting into the structure of your home and causing mold and mildew issues. This can damage and compromise the integrity of your house. Siding also helps regulate your indoor temperature better allowing you to save money on heating and cooling bills. Better insulation and temps also lead to less stress on your HVAC unit, allowing it to run properly and reduce wear and tear.
Exterior siding ALSO keeps pests at bay, which, depending how you feel about them, might just be the best reason of all!
If you notice your exterior siding is:
- cracked or chipped
- gaps between boards
- water damage
- peeling and chipped paint
- faded and old
then it might just be time to replace and update! With a wide variety of options and colors, you can bring back the natural beauty of your unique home. Vinyl, hardie, insulated, LP, decorative and more – you can find the best protection for your home that fits your particular needs, style and budget.
Another crucial component in home protection are windows. Updated and energy-efficient windows aid siding in regulating temperature, eliminating drafts, cutting back on energy costs and putting less stress on your HVAC system.
